The Canaanite Group: Literature and Ideology, units 1-6, by Nurith Gertz, Rachel Weissbrod, and Rakefet Sela-Sheffy. Absolutely fascinating; however, ignoring Ratosh’s political poetry (the non-existent unit 5) does a disservice to the course’s declared goal.
The Canaanite Group: Literature and Ideology, collected writings, by Nurith Gertz and Rachel Weissbrod.
The Canaanite Group: Literature and Ideology: Reader and Student Guide, edited by Yael Dekel, Open University internal edition. Whereas the writing of Dan Laor is brilliant and enjoyable, the writing of Hannan Hever is intolerable; opaque and impenetrable, as if by design.
And also, unrelated:
Another Place, a Foreign City: A Novel in Verse, Maya Arad, following Pushkin -- and following one’s love. What a joyful book; absolutely captivating.
